Not possible to remove a Printer

Hi

I have a strange issue on a customers Server 2008 R2. It is not possible to remove an old Printer.
What I already tried are :

1) Clicked the Printer => Remove device
2) Right clicked the Printer => Remove device
3) Rebooted and repeated Step 1 and 2
   
Any help is appreciated.
     
Many thanks in advance

Please check that the print queue for that printer is empty prior to removing the device.
